Les Mois: Douze Compositions by Eugene Grasset.

This folio was published in Paris in 1895. In the early 1890’s, Grasset began experimenting with a new form of printing, Chromotypography, an early form of photolithography, which was invented by one of his friends, Firmin Gillot. This calendar was printed in “Gillotage,” from wood engravings, a process of manual application an acid-fast image on a zinc plate and the subsequent deepening of the nonprinting sections by etching in nitric acid. The end result is an image with vibrant, but pastel color, perfectly registered.
